Play OverviewPlay Overview

Peek and Push (2018) is a 2-player brain game where you try and memorise what's on a set of Symbol cards in a grid. It's like Pelmanism/Pairs but here the cards are in a grid and display up to three coloured circles. It's a clever battle of memorisation and manipulation as you can peek, reveal cards or move the rows until you are sure (fingers crossed) you can pick a row that has no matching colours or numbers.

Play involves deciding how large the play grid will be. The larger the grid the more cards and numbers there are to memorise. You take turns to either peek at a card, push a row along one and reveal a card. The aim is to gain enough knowledge about a row that you are sure it contains no doubles - colours or number of circles - then you can call it out and win.

The result is a battle to remember which cards are where, but also to move the rows around so that what your opponent knows is limited. You can also foil them by ensuring the rows they know about contain two cards with either the same colour or number of circles. It's a simple game that also scales in complexity to match the players.
